Our primary method of shipping is through the USPS. First class and Parcel Post are the
standard methods. Priority Mail is used for expedited shipping (and to all AK and HI addresses), and Express for Overnight/2nd day.
When shipping to a business address, we use UPS or FedEx at our discretion. If you require a specific
type of shipping service, feel free to specify in your order comments. We can use any of the 3 services
**Given the nature of our merchandise (i.e. small, light items), we are often able to ship orders for less than $7.95. Since our goal is not to profit from shipping, we will subtract the excess shipping charge from your total, and charge only the amount relative to your order. Please be assured that there will be no up-charges on shipping - $7.95 is our guaranteed maximum on standard shipping methods unless otherwise stated with the product or unless a specific service is requested by the customer.**
If you request UPS or FedEx ground, the cost may be higher than $7.95. This is the only time costs may be higher - if a specific service is requested by the customer.
